Ray Lea-Jones

Do you remember a D.J. there who worked with Paul Pender called Ray Lea-Jones at Super Takis.  I saw him in the south of France last year and he still looks the same .... a bit bigger round the waste and a few grey hairs but that's about it .... how do you get to his age ( must be 60+ )look good on it ...

I first took up the mike in 1965 at a disco called the Bat Cave in Wythenshawe. It was part of ten a pin bowling alley with a D.J. who called himself Johnny Be Good.

I also did the Ice Rink in Altrincham, The Southern Hotel  near Southern cemetery and Uglys Music  Motor in Liverpool. There where umpteen other pubs in and a round Manchester  whose names have slipped my mind.

Then it was on to Takis with Paul Pender. I also did the odd night at other clubs with in the Rountrees group.

From you, was it in 1968 or 1969, what a shame there was just the one photo.
